Open Book by Jessica Simpson Book Summary

The #1 New York Times Bestseller

Jessica reveals for the first time her inner monologue and most intimate struggles. Guided by the journals she's kept since age fifteen, and brimming with her unique humor and down-to-earth humanity, Open Book is as inspiring as it is entertaining.

This was supposed to be a very different book. Five years ago, Jessica Simpson was approached to write a motivational guide to living your best life. She walked away from the offer, and nobody understood why. The truth is that she didn’t want to lie.

Jessica couldn’t be authentic with her readers if she wasn’t fully honest with herself first.

Now America’s Sweetheart, preacher’s daughter, pop phenomenon, reality tv pioneer, and the billion-dollar fashion mogul invites readers on a remarkable journey, examining a life that blessed her with the compassion to help others, but also burdened her with an almost crippling need to please. Open Book is Jessica Simpson using her voice, heart, soul, and humor to share things she’s never shared before.

First celebrated for her voice, she became one of the most talked-about women in the world, whether for music and fashion, her relationship struggles, or as a walking blonde joke. But now, instead of being talked about, Jessica is doing the talking. Her book shares the wisdom and inspirations she’s learned and shows the real woman behind all the pop-culture cliché’s — “chicken or fish,” “Daisy Duke,” "football jinx," “mom jeans,” “sexual napalm…” and more. Open Book is an opportunity to laugh and cry with a close friend, one that will inspire you to live your best, most authentic life, now that she is finally living hers.

Open Book (Jessica Simpson) Book Reviews

Amazing !I didn’t really know what to expect, but had no idea she would be so open about everything. This was very hard to put down. Every woman needs to read it..Score: 5/5

Love Everything About JessicaShe is so relatable, honest, and funny..Score: 5/5

Loved itI really loved the book.. it brought out a lot of different emotions in me.. Thank you Jessica for sharing your life with us and being so honest and true...Score: 5/5

This book is raw, honest and beautifully written.I was a teenager during Jessica’s rise to fame. How humbling it is to read the real words to a story you were constantly subject to due to the media. Tabloids were everything then. Perception was truth. How wrong we were. I have read every celebrity book, most were lackluster, some plain painful, but not this one. This is not just a memoir peeking into the convoluted world of celebrity, something that none of us will know.. This is a book showing the harsh world that many girls experience. I commend Jessica for her ability to be completely open and transparent. This is her story and she writes it beautifully. Her honesty is astounding. It’s so much more than salacious drama.. This is about real life obstacles that we all have endured. She was honest with herself, which is the hardest thing to truly do. But it will help people like me and many others who self medicate and deflect..Score: 5/5

Great readI wasn’t a die hard fan of hers before reading, but I did and have enjoyed a few of her songs and watched Newlyweds. It was fascinating to hear her truths and learn not only her story but see the truths in my story as well. It always warmed my heart that through everything God is still the forefront of her life. So good, and definitely recommend!!.Score: 5/5

Must readI’m not the one for autobiographies but I’ve always liked Jessica. A friend told me I should read this book because it was THAT good. I’m glad I did! I finished it within days, I couldn’t put it down.Score: 5/5

Truly InspirationalI didn’t think I was going to tear up so much reading this let alone having so many things in common with Jessica but I am so happy to finally have read it. So well written and so detailed about her life. Must read!.Score: 5/5

HonestI am 59. I had to listen to her music again to remember her songs. That says something about my generation because I know my music and the greatest artists don’t require a search engine. What I learned from her story is that she is a very honest person, faithful to God, unfiltered and who acknowledged her struggles and unpacked them truthfully. Jessica is the bomb! She is a very talented and beautiful person. Impressed..Score: 5/5

Worth the read!The book really carries you through the author’s life. She is honest, vulnerable, and real. You’ll catch yourself going back a few paragraphs just to wrap your head around the fact that you’re reading about JESSICA SIMPSON and getting a (pretty big) peek into celebrity life, and then-as cliché as it sounds-continue reading and think, “wow, we’re really not that different.” And you empathize. And you thank her for sharing her story..Score: 4/5

Beautiful, sad, amazing storyThis was truly an amazing story and things I had no idea about. I have a new appreciation for Jessica Simpson now..Score: 5/5

Open book!!I love every minute of this book as she bares her soul with coming into terms with everything and grabbing her life back into her hands. She will forever rise up and love fiercely with her faith and family by her side..Score: 5/5

Faith kept me readingIt was Jessica Simpsons faith in God that I was able to relate to the most. I found God on my own, and I had a relationship with him despite being raised in a non religious home. Through all of my trauma, I always found myself at Gods feet asking to be saved. Her vulnerability, and courage to admit her weaknesses has made her strong. I never would’ve thought I’d be reading her memoir, but God must’ve put this book directly in my path. Jessica Simpson has gained a new fan. I will pray for her to continue a life of sobriety..Score: 5/5

Worth a readIf you’re like me and grew up with Jessica then this book is worth a read!we are the same age and I envied her life so much, now I’ve come to realise that we only know a fraction of their story. What we project to the world is not always the truth. Thank you for opening your soul to the world in this book. Thank you for tying up so many “loose ends” in the questions I always wish I knew the truth to..Score: 5/5

This Book Is A Must ReadYou will laugh, you will cry, you will be surprised and you will not want to put it down but by the end you will know who Jessica Simpson really is and maybe think twice before judging a book by the cover (or a celebrity by a magazine cover) again..Score: 5/5
